It’s a mystery to me – I don’t see the point in buying coffee when I can have it in the office. When you think about it for the price of a coffee at £2.50 then you could buy a sandwich instead.

I meet my clients in coffee shops, like Costa or Starbucks, and I’d imagine a lot of people do the same. But I know a lot of my friends are trying to save money; and not buying coffee is one way to do so.

In general I have a couple of hours a day in which I have got nothing to do, what else could you do apart from drink coffee – I can’t drink beer! They’re so well-placed and I always know where I can find one to go to.
